From the age of four to adults and from beginners to advanced I will provide a platform for developing your own or your child’s innate musical abilities. I strongly believe that anyone can learn to play the violin.
Some of my happiest memories are centred on the friends I made while playing in quartets and orchestras throughout the years. At 15 I was chosen to attend the Bremen International Youth Orchestra in Germany – a two-week orchestra workshop of over 10 different nationalities. It was there, among 120 other young musicians, that I first noticed a difference in the European model of teaching music. Like math and languages, music was a central, critical and essential part of education and staunchly supported by government. This concept of music as a vital and fundamental part of the whole education process of children is an important aspect of how I teach and approach musical education.
